Ep.40> Bernardi’s II, Route 66, Pontiac IL

Bernardi’s II > Route 66, Pontiac IL

Back in Pontiac! Ahhh. It feels like home. After meeting the Mayor and co on my last visit I couldn’t wait to get back. Like I said these guys are some of the nicest people I have ever met.

This time I got to eat at Bernardi’s II and after seeing everyones order I wish I was sat alone so I could sample them all. The food was fantastic and the best way for me to describe it was “comfort food”. And man I was comfortable.

I got to meet the people that run the Route 66 museum and they made me a proud member of the Route 66 Association of Illinois! What an honor!!

Here’s a snap with me and my membership card! The photo’s in the background are from my ‘Neon America’ exhibition!
